My parents treated us all this past weekend by offereing to carry my little guys to Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Obviously, this was a treat for the boys....but it was also a treat for me and Bradley. Having a kid free weekend is a super rare treat. Not that we sit around and wish to not have our own children...because we LOVE spending time with them....but it's a treat to get to do something as a married couple. A married couple who is still madly in love, but has a hard time finding moments to squeeze in for ourselves. If you're a parent...you know what I'm getting at.
So anyway......as I gave the boys a kiss and wished them farewell on their adventure, I suggested that the boys use their IPOD cameras to snap a few photos of fun memories along the way.
I expected one of two things to happen....
1. They would never once use the IPODs up to take a photo with.....or....
2. They would take a million blurry pictures that didn't really even make sense.
I was completely proved wrong.
When the boys arrived home and told us all about the trip, Sawyer held out his IPOD to me. He said,
"Oh, Mom. I almost forgot. I made you a slideshow of our trip. It has 17 pictures on it."
"Yes, Mam. I figured 17 would be too many for you to use for your blog, but you can pick the ones you want. Are you gonna use them for your blog?"
Wow! My little 8 year old really knows his Mom! And since he suggested it....I couldn't pass up the offer to include his photography in my blog.
Despite the fact that his IPOD takes poor quality photos, I thought he did a great job on the composition! Here are a few pictures taken with Sawyer as the photographer.....
Sawyer couldn't take this one of himself standing in two states at the same time, so he handed the IPOD off and asked his Nana to take it for him.
Carter wasn't quite as successful in his photography skills, although I am happy with the 3 whole pictures he took. I will share his entire album with you....I know you will be impressed.
I expected that if they used the IPODS to take photos, that I would see a load of ridiculous pictures. Instead, I got a surprisingly nice collection of memories from their weekend.
Well done, lads.
